Enhanced Account Protection 🔒
To strengthen the security of your account, we released an update on August 7, 2023 that will require users to sign in more frequently. Users will be logged out automatically after 24 hours of inactivity, or once every 14 days for users who take action more often than every 24 hours.
To learn more, see Account Security in our support center.
Job Refresh & Indeed Sponsored Jobs 🔄
We recently discovered a minor issue with how job refresh impacts Indeed sponsored jobs. To keep things running smoothly and ensure the best results, we’re making an adjustment to the job refresh schedule. Any jobs set to refresh in August will have the refresh date extended by 30 days. This impacts all customers whether or not you are currently sponsoring a job.
Please note, if you are sponsoring a job directly on Indeed, automatic job refresh should be disabled while your campaign is running to avoid any issues like being accidentally removed or pausing the budget.
Here's what we've fixed since our last update! ⭐
An issue where Employees were being automatically moved to the Archive when added to a location in Referrals.
An incident that briefly prevented applicants from being able to submit applications.
An issue where searches for resume keywords did not populate resumes containing those keywords.
An issue that prevented the Province field from pre-populating or being selected for jobs with Canadian addresses.

To learn how to turn on these communication options, check out Automated Communication in our Knowledge Base.
*Since some applicants opt out of text communication, we recommend always sending notifications via email even when the text notification type is enabled!

Here's how it works:
✅ Anyone marked as 'Hired' in Hireology will be automatically enrolled in the Automated New Hire Referral Campaigns.
✅ The campaigns will begin two weeks after their hire date.
✅ Notifications will be sent to the new employee on a weekly basis for five weeks.

First, the tea 🫖

This data is aggregated by Indeed and used to improve the way jobs are displayed to job seekers with matching qualifications. To learn more, check out Indeed Disposition Sync!
